Future success in migration
Codurance was initially brought in by Digital Theatre to work alongside the internal team to define the technology stack for the new cloud platform, provide technical advice and validate the architecture and infrastructure decisions. We led a complex content migration project, which required content to be migrated, transformed and classified in order to deliver the features and capabilities required.

Working alongside the internal team, throughout the engagement, our Craftspeople consistently shared new ideas, recommendations and best practices to ensure the Digital Theatre team were able to work at a sustainable pace, delivering working software every week and enabling the Digital Theatre team to gain new skills to continue the evolution of the DT+ platform in future.
Modern, fast and secure
The DT+ platform is now a modern, fast, secure and accessible set of web applications built using the latest Serverless architecture, achieving not only feature parity with the existing solution but also creating a huge positive impact to the publishing team that can easily edit and maintain Content. The platform now meets the required accessibility standards and search is greatly improved so that all content can be searched for and easily discovered, creating an enriched user experience for DT+ subscribers.
The entire catalogue of 1,300+ resources on DT+ will now be visible to anyone browsing the site, prompting users to sign up to a subscription to access the content which will be a significant vehicle for increasing sales. The platform built by Codurance in partnership with Digital Theatre will allow Digital Theatre’s technology team to easily make improvements in future, develop new features and support the business’s vision around personalisation, content recommendation and making content available on other platforms.
